Johnnie's Pastrami-simply the BEST!

I've been eating here since I lived in SoCal the 70s & 80s especially late night around the firepit with my friends!! Since then I've lived and traveled all across the country but always go out of my way to eat at Johnnie's any time I'm in SoCal. Just up Sepulveda from the airport (skip the 405... read more

I never give fives. So, there's that. The basic pastrami sandwich is AWESOME. As fate would have it, I was leafing through LA Mag's top cheap eats and came upon Johnnie's, which I pass everyday but never thought much about. Good News: It was on my way to work and an hour later I was ordering. Bad News: I was... More

Johnnie's is an institution. Seems to have been in business at the same place off Sepulveda near Culver City forever. Super casual and a bit retro. Some of the tables have a little coin op jukebox, and there is an outdoor patio with fire ring. But you don't go to Johnnie's for the atmosphere! You go for some of the... More

Delicious sandwich, great environment. This is one of those local gems that locals like to share. If you like meat and love pastrami, get their classic sandwich. Also, if you love pickles ask for extra pickles on the table while you wait for your food.

I've always wondered why pastrami sandwich shops all have a certain style: Old school servers with a fun attitude, an atmosphere with style and great meat. Gotta love Johnnie's. It's been here forever. Parking can be a challenge. Killer pastrami sandwiches Incredible pickles Maybe some of the best fries around. I admit once I came here and tried the fried... More

Flash back central here! Stop by and put a quarter in the juke box, enjoy a GIGANTIC pastrami sandwich, some hot french fries and home made pickles. Delicious!

I love Johnnie's Pastrami, fries & pickles. Steven and I like to go late at night since there open till 3 in the a.m. If you have problems sleeping and your hungry, head off to get you a HOT DIP PASTRAMI SANDWICH WITH FRIES.

Well you walk in and you don't expect much. The place is clean enough and well kept, but small and completely without atmosphere. But Johnnie's is one of those places that has been around forever, so the food has to be terrific, right? I've eaten here twice, had a pastrami sandwich both times, and would have to characterize the sandwich... More

I'm from Brooklyn, and I'm fussy about certain foods. Johnnie's rings the bell, two out of three. Their vanilla shake is tops, their pickles...a kosher delight. They prepare pastrami on an Italian roll. If they could put it on real Jewish rye, then O.K. Still it's not bad. Cash only, easy parking off Sepulveda.
